Give Your Inner Critic a Hug

"Your authentic self wasn’t born a critic - she looked in the mirror back then with curiosity and awe."


The inner voice says:

You’re not smart enough. You’re not pretty enough. You’re not confident enough, thin enough, interesting enough.

That is the inner voice of beautiful, strong, smart, courageous, and powerful grown** women from all over the world.

In this episode, I am talking about what an inner critic (IC) is and why the IC exists in *most* of us, and how to use loads of self-compassion to befriend your IC to help you find freedom in making your critic’s voice quieter than your true, authentic voice which deserves to SHINE. 

I’m going to give you a peek inside my IC and how SHE and I had a rough start to 2022.

I wanted to talk about the inner critic today to help you hug it out with your IC and make HER a little less noisy so you can be friends - because when we’re friends with ourselves, life becomes a little more peaceful and a lot more adventurous.

Your Greatest Fear is Your Greatest Superpower with Lindsay Sutherland Boal




I'm Lori Massicot, the host of To 50 and Beyond. 

I started the podcast in 2018 with a mission to talk about aging and sobriety and share stories of hope and inspiration in midlife and beyond. 

My continued mission is to bring women over 40 together over topics that don't usually get discussed aloud to break through the shame and stigma that holds us back from being, doing, and experiencing BETTER.

It's never too late to travel another path and have fun along the way. 

I know you're ready to ROCK your very best self To 50 and Beyond!
